Word has it Bash Brother Jose Canseco found himself dismissed from a Mexican minor league baseball team (AAA) following an admission he took banned testosterone. At least according to an MLB official:
Mexican Baseball League officials say Jose Canseco has acknowledged that he took a banned substance for which he has no prescription and will now not play in the league.
Plinio Escalante, president of the Mexican League, confirmed to ESPN Deportes that the banned substance is testosterone.
A source told ESPN Deportes that Canseco refused to take a doping test.
Wait, Canseco denies the report:
Canseco took to Twitter Wednesday to refute the allegations.
"How can I test positive when I never took any test don't believe everything the media tells you.the truth always comes out I am not using any illegal substanced," Canseco tweeted. "Don't be so quick to judge till you here the truth that's a sure sign of ignorance hatred and jealousy."
Doesn't seem to be an issue of tests, Jose. Doesn't seem to be any hatred or jealousy (can those be used in the same sentence?). And the ignorance is not likely to be with the media this time.
Sounds like Canseco's comeback with the Quintana Roo Tigers is bashed.
